An honest inquiry, to say so myself.

Edit: Decreased the time for the cube and chess match as people kept referring me to human accomplishments.

truly sad...

HAHAHA, I had always wondered why there was a four move cap. At least Anime wise Pikachu at any given point only seemed to know four moves. From what I've noticed he hasn't used Thunder in a billion eps. I may be wrong, but it looks like they adhere to that logic too.

Poor Alakazam. He and Mewtwo should go drinking.

Actually, Pikachu DID use Thunder in the first season when Team Rocket first recognized how strong he was. Since then, he was never able to use that much power anymore for he was a cheap rat and Ash was stupid enough to get rid of Thunder.

Pikachu got Volt-Tackle in during the Fire Red/Leaf Green season though, which is arguably stronger than Thunder. Never seems to take recoil though.

But there is the times of cheating, Thunder Armor anyone?

Pokédex lies anyway. Apparently a Houndoom burn is permanent and Gardevoir can make minature Black Holes. Seeing what 5th Gen says will be interesting.

they seem to know more than 4 moves in the anime.

October 26th, 2010, 5:07 pm

Arceus (God) can't learn more than 4 moves either.

Oh my god this deserves a Fav

Sadly this is so true. Metagross, too, is pretty smart but still can't learn the 5th move I want it to have... Even if he's more intelligent than supercomputer.

I love the comic, dude. Every one of them made me laugh. RSS'd :D

October 29th, 2010, 5:31 am

This comic is great. +fav

December 24th, 2010, 12:02 pm


The anime seems to actually follow that rule. Remember Iron Tail?

January 1st, 2011, 9:14 pm

I watched an episode of pokemon just to see if there was a move cap, and pikachu used 5 moves in the same battle -__-

Meh, move caps are so dumb OTL

January 22nd, 2011, 5:18 am

Yeah, save Drake's Dragonite (Orange Islands) used Slam, Flamethrower, Water Gun, Thunderbolt and Hyper Beam all in one battle . . .

You should make a tumblr, definitely get more fans

February 4th, 2011, 10:02 pm

and.. lol I've always wondered why Alakazams haven't taken over the world yet if their IQ is that much higher than human IQ o-o

Do your research

You could have at least Googled what would be a respectable time on a 5x5 cube. I could beat the time in the comic pretty easily.
Other than that (which I feel obliged to comment about as a cuber) great comic!

I think the record is something like 1 min 3 secs for a 5x5. But I think seven minutes is still pretty good. If you don't look at directions on how to solve them, they are hard! And in the anime, they are getting a bit better with them only knowing 4 moves at a time. This is true in most of the new episodes now.

Rubik's cube

7 minutes is a long time to finish a Rubik's cube, even a 5x5 one. Alakazam should be able to do it in seconds.

78 seconds? For a five by five? That's...surprisingly slow.

October 8th, 2011, 2:52 pm

thats wrong

one episode, ash sees gary fighting an alakazam with umberon and alakazam uses7

October 17th, 2011, 7:00 pm

*lightly slaps alakazam in the face*

its a critical hit!!!

never understood wtf alakazam was... was it a fox? a demon? a fox demon?! HUNGRY??!?

December 4th, 2011, 9:39 pm

An IQ of about 5000, yet all it can say is "Alakazam."

February 5th, 2012, 12:34 am

Anyone else notice that alakazam's head looks alarmingly similar to the cubone skull?

February 6th, 2012, 7:30 am

Out of all your comics this one is my favourite XD

"A Pokemon that can memorize anything. It never forgets what it learns -- that's why this Pokemon is so smart."
"Alakazam forgot Confusion!"
